Book Description

This book is a collection of short interviews with 14 prominent individuals from different parts of the world, from Australia to Canada, and of different occupations, from low-level programmers to physicists and musicians, asking them a more-or-less similar set of questions on the following topics: their general attitude to programming, attitude towards and experience with Lisp, stories of real-world Lisp projects.

Overall, this should give an insight into why people use Lisp, as well as help the readers gain some new experience and improve as programmers.
